4:06 am
it may be a case that over the past couple of years, he's become politically unpopular here. it didn't look like he was going to get many votes in the upcoming election and he also received a lot of success over the past week and a half. a little bounce in the polls and thought might as well go out on top while i can. or whatever the new top is right now as things have come. doesn't mean that he is all together done with the israeli government. while he would not stand for the election, the prime minister, whoever that is in the next government after january 22, can ask him to come back. he may go back to the business life hen joyed after he was prime muenster. not clear exactly if there was any other issues related to the fact that he decided to leave. the other thing that we are watching here in israel closely is what's going on in egypt. the mass protests that happened over the weekend over president morsi's decrees that effectively made him a dictator, according to many of the people in the street throwing stones, hundreds if not thousands in the streets protesting.
4:07 am
the muslim brotherhood, on the other hand, out there in support of the president. so far one dead. dozens, if not hundreds injured in the clashes that we've seen happening all around egypt. today president morsi is meeting with the judiciary branch of the government who made completely irrelevant with these decree to try to calm things down. tomorrow there is big protest planned by the brotherhood in support and by the liberal opposition against the decrees that will really show how it will happen going forward. back to you. >> steve: lee around la vittert, thank you very much. that was stunning over the weekend that president morsi did this extraordinary power grab. >> brian: hours after brokering this agreement. >> steve: how crazy is that? it looked like there was a breakthrough. next thing you know, i'm running the whole show. generally the judiciary reviews everything, i'm freezing them out. >> gretchen: why would anyone be surprised because remember, the president of the united states wasn't sure if egypt was an enemy or ally a couple months
4:08 am
ago. and keep in mind that this is a new phase for egypt now. even though they had -- who was the ruler before? mubarak. even though he was a dictator and did some horrible things, he was a friend of the united states. now it's just a huge question mark. egypt is the central player, as far as the survivalability of israel in this part of the world. so who knows what's going to happen next? morsi is holding a tremendous amount of power. >> brian: senator mccain says hey, obama, you got to condemn this guy. listen. >> this is not what the united states of america taxpayers expect and our dollars will be directly related to the progress towards democracy, which you promised the people of egypt when your party and you were elected president. stop. stop renown the statement and the move that he just made. allow the judiciary to function. if the judiciary is flawed in
4:09 am
some way, then that is an illness that can be cured over time of the but absolutely to assume this kind of power is unacceptable to the united states of america. and then we can outline what actions might be taken. but first condemn it. >> brian: morsi's quote, god made me captain of the ship. >> steve: al he was referred to as the new pharaoh. an hour ago, the white house released a statement if the congress fails to extend the tax cuts. >> i'm holding the report in my hand. president obama recently stated the middle class should not be held hostage while congress debates tax cuts for the
4:10 am
wealthy. he wants congress to agree on keeping taxes low for the middle class and the white house released this report and the middle class tax cuts impact on consumer spending and retailers. over the weekend, people have been holiday shopping, taking advantage of black friday and small business saturday sales. even the president and his own daughters joined the shopping at a small book store in northern virginia. today on cyber monday, the white house releasing this report showing its details on the impact to retailers and consumers. it states if congress fails to avert the fiscal cliff, taxes would rise by $2,200 for 98% of americans. the president wants democrats and republicans to agree on renewing tax cuts to give families and business morse certainty about the economy. but he wants those with incomes over $250,000 a year to pay a little more in taxes as we all know. which has been a sticking point with the gop. but now some republican lawmakers who earlier pledged to not vote for anything with a tax
4:11 am
increase now appear ready to relink wish that pledge in order to avoid the looping fiscal crisis. >> i would be very much opposed to raising tax rates, but i do believe we can close a lot of loopholes. >> they have to go up either real tax rates or effective tax rates. there is ways of doing that. secondly, though, we've got to close significant loopholes. >> bottom line, getting back to the report, the president is asking congress it act now specs tend the tax cuts for the middle class. they say the holiday season is not a time to threaten middle class pocketbooks. back to you. >> steve: thanks very much. the white house wants all the people who voted for barak obama to flood congressmen with e-mail and also with video messages via youtube saying why we should raise taxes on the rich. >> gretchen: so it's mainly for conservative democrats and to sway some republicans in those districts. we asked what you thought about this. will it change members of

congress' mind? here is marge, cut all loopholes, subsidies and reduce spending equally but do not raise taxes. >> steve: here is a tweet from heather. it would say do your job, pass a balanced budget like required by law. no more closed door secret tax meetings. >> brian: more e-mails and tweets coming. first let's welcome heather, another way to save money, shop on cyber monday. when we're done work. >> that's the thing, we used to wait until we got to the office on monday morning to start doing the shopping. now people are doing it over the weekend and they did it in huge numbers on friday. numbers were up 26% from last year on friday alone. and this year they're expected or today cyber monday they're expected to be up 20% over last year. >> steve: what are some of the deals? >> there is great deals. sears is now offering a 50% off plus an extra 10% off coats,

seven dollar trades are just the start. our support teams are nearby, ready to help. it's no wonder so many investors are saying... [ all ] i'm with scottrade. >> gretchen: 17 minutes after the top of the hour. it's no secret, the majority of african-american voters traditionally support the democratic candidate for office. so for example, in this past election, 93% of african-americans voted for president obama. 6% for mitt romney. but by vote not guilty democratic candidates, are african-americans getting a candidate who is actually in their corner? jason reilly is a columnist for the "wall street journal" and he's written a very interesting analysis of this very difficult. good to see you. >> good morning.
4:18 am
>> gretchen: you say that you actually believe that african-american politicians are doing a disservice to the african-american community and it starts with education. how? >> well, we had an example in election day where some voters in georgia, a state where one out of three kids does not graduate from high school in four years, passed school choice mission, to expand the number of charter schools in the state. it turns out where blacks live in the state, there was even more support for this initiative than in the state overall. it passed 59-41. it passed by better than 60% in some of these jurisdictions where blacks live. right after it past, state law members, led by the black caucus, said they're going to fight the law. here you have black parents overwhelmingly supporting school choice and not just in georgia, but we see these statewide. yet you have black lawmakers opposed. and there is a sort of disconnect between the agenda of black leadership, black
4:19 am
political leadership in particular, like the naacp and wants and feeds of the black community. >> gretchen: it's so amazing because the disconnect you talk about is starting from the top on down. president obama sends his own two children to private schools because he was against the voucher program in washington, d.c. >> exactly. off hugely popular program in dc producing great outcomes. the kids that use these vouchers, graduate at much higher rates, 30, 40 points higher rates than kids who attend the traditional public schools in washington, d.c yet the president has spent his first term trying to kill the dc voucher program. >> gretchen: it comes down to why? i'm going to guess it's one word, which is unions. >> yes. it is. the black leadership is heavily dependent on teachers unions and labor in general for political support. they put that ahead of the actual needs in the community. it's a shame because it's doing real harm. president obama likes to lecture us day in and day out about the importance of education and education spending.
4:20 am
yet he's killing a program -- he wants to kill funding fort dc voucher program. >> gretchen: i want you to finish the analysis that you talk about in your article because it's so important about how cyclical this is. if you don't start with a good education, what happens? >> all the bad outcomes we know. our prisons are not full of people with college degrees. we know the bad outcomes. the teen pregnancy, the drug rates and so forth. and the shame here is that black kids, minority kids are disproportionately stuck in the worst public schools that the system has to offer. which is why it's no surprise that these parents in georgia and other states, district of columbia, vote for school choice. they want to get out of this and a way to opt out of this awful situation that they're in and it's a shame that the black politicians want to keep them stuck there out of self interest. >> gretchen: it will be interesting to see if the republican party can outreach to

4:26 am
was further from the truth. we know it was an act of terror. >> brian: we also know some other congressmen, many supported you in saying she should not be nominated. >> they are. we have about 100 signatures on the letter we sent to president obama saying there are other choices out there and susan rice is probably not the best choice. >> brian: i also saw that peter king was asked the same question on "meet the press." he says just because she looked at the unclassified documents and if they were coming from the white house, it's incumbent on her to go beyond those talking points and do her own research before going on five talk shows. do you feel the same way? >> absolutely. the real question here is why would susan rice put on the sunday talk shows with a message that misled the american people for the real reason behind the attacks, especially when it was just weeks before a very important presidential election. >> brian: when she came out and pled her case last week, did that change your mind at all?
4:27 am
when she said i was just going over the information that i was given at the time and she sounded somewhat open to questions about her role in this entire thing. >> it comes down to her credibility now. do we want someone as secretary of state that is somehow tainted in this whole benghazi issue? i don't think so. i think the bigger question to ask is she should have known the information, should have had all the talking points, the truth to the matter and the fact she misled the american people, whether intentional or unintentional, she is tainted in this issue. >> brian: congressman, thank you very much. we'll see if the president takes the next step and nominates her. >> thank you. >> brian: 2 1/2 minutes before the bottom of the hour. how much would you pay to spy on your teenage driver? one company offer ago deal to parents. then the new financial bubble is about to burst. stuart varney says yes. why else would he come walking into our studio on this

4:33 am
killly anthony was seen alive t. may have called the claim of accidental death into question. even her defense attorney says he was shocked it never came up in court. >> steve: over a dozen people in pakistan died after drinking cough syrup. it happened in the eastern city of lahor. cops say the victims were all drug addicts who were drinking the medicine to get high. the manufacturer has been arrested and the factory has been shut down, as well as several pharmacies selling that particular cough syrup. it is currently being tested. >> brian: hostess, which was forced to close its doors due to union demands has left the country hungry for twinkies. this is especially true in florida where one bakery is selling them for 50 cents. >> it's sad they're not going to know what twinkies are.

>> it's just sad that a few greedy people decided to make a pay cut wasn't good enough and wanted 100% pay cut. ridiculous. >> brian: so many people turned out for the sweet sale. the store sold 2100 twinkies in 15 minutes. >> gretchen: would you pay $99 to find out how your teen-ager drives when they think you're not watching? that's exactly what parents can do as part of a new police program being launched in 285 cities across the country. an off-duty police officer will tail your teen on the road for 15 to 20 minutes, then report their findings to the parents. >> i said, i'm going to have you follow followed. you're going to be followed and if there is a problem, we're going to have a problem. so i thought that might in itself might be a good enough of a message for her to drive properly and then thought why not, let's do this.
4:35 am
let's get a report and see how it goes. >> gretchen: that parent let her daughter know she was going to be followed, so it encouraged safer driving all the time. you see that works, all the parents know that. like i tell my son that i'm watching him at lunch at school. >> steve: you're watching him at lunch? >> gretchen: that mommies have special eyes behind their heads. you never know when mommy is going to show up for lunch. it works. >> steve: there you go. all right. >> brian: it's there. you're never too young to lie to your kids. >> gretchen: called a white lie, brian. >> steve: stuart varney is watching me do the weather. widely scattered showers through portions of louisiana, up through the lower mississippi valley. also a little snow this morning, believe it or not, around the great lakes and some rain in portions of the ohio valley. it is chilly in the northern plains and --

[ applause ] >> gretchen: the best part about that was that it was entirely football, a sport you know nothing about. >> did you have to tell them that? >> gretchen: you know about football, it's european. it's soccer. >> correct. >> gretchen: you know about the economy. you twittered out you were going to warn us about the next bubble. >> all of us on this couch lived through two bubbles. disasterous bubble, dot com and housing. maybe we're in a third bubble which is buying uncle sam's bonds because a lot of people have been doing this thinking that if you buy a treasury security, as they're called, you
4:39 am
are dead safe, absolutely dead safe. millions of people have poured a lot of money into these treasuries. and up goes the price, up goes the value. a bubble level. but watch out, bubbles break with disasterous consequences. >> brian: what would cause something like this to break? >> if lenders stop lending money to america's government, if ben bernanke stops printing money, if inflation really takes off, then those bond prices have have gone straight up to bubblelike proportions come straight down of the that bubble bursts and people who have invested in those bonds lose money. maybe this is the third big bubble. maybe. >> steve: that would be unfortunate because so many people and a lot of people who are retired put their money into bonds and they have seen the amount of money they've been able to get from the bonds go way down in the last couple of years. >> yes. if you invest for ten years with uncle sam at the moment, you earn 1.6% interest. that is it. that's. >> gretchen: bernanke's job appears to be safe because you remember, mitt romney said he
4:40 am
would fire bernanke. mitt romney did not become president. so wouldn't the chances that he just continues to print money? >> oh, he'll keep printing. but at some point you have to stop. you can't just print for generations on end. when the time comes, that's the point you may have this bubble burst. >> brian: not only that, countries. couldn't countries go under, too, on top of that? >> yes, they could. that could all happen. yes. the point is, millions of people think that an investment with uncle sam is dead safe. wrong. it is not. we may northbound a bubble in that particular investment. >> brian: back to the mattress. >> steve: we've got to wean ourselves off of the company of money. >> gretchen: if you can figure out what fg is, let me know later. >> with a does that mean? >> gretchen: field goal. >> oh, yes. >> steve: thank you very much. we'll be watching you at 9:20 on

4:46 am
exclusively blamed congress 16 times more than president obama for the fiscal cliff and the six months prior to the election. >> yes. and not just congress, but republicans in congress who were inflexible, they're fighting tax raises on the rich. you would think if you watched coverage of this debate that grover norquist was single handedly stopping progress from occurring. he's not a member of congress, he does not have a constituency. he is an activist in washington. by the way, this story to some extent is over. republicans have signaled they are open to raising taxes on the rich. many of them have attacked grover norquist. but if you get a hand held calculator and a calculator action you will conclude that the rich being undertaxed is not the reason we have a debt larger than our economy. it's entitlements. medicare, medicaid and social security. and by the way, that's the debate. will we curtail entitlement spending and that is exactly the debate that is not being covered in the press.
4:47 am
>> steve: and the reason we brought this up is because according to the research, the main stream media blaming republicans more for the problem, it's a shared responsibility. first of all, the sequester, despite what the president said at the debate, which actually an invention of the white house. so you've got to -- when you talk about compromise, you've got to blame both parties for not sitting down at the table until now. >> well, for the republican point of view, it was a pretty dumb deal actually. sequester, the entire deal was a way for the white house to take this debate off the table before the election and in the end, that helped president obama. but right now the only question is will democrats show any flexibility at all at curtailing medicare spending, period? harry reid has already said social security is off the table. we're not touching social security. that's not a story? no. it really wasn't. that was basically uncovered by the networks. but the debate now is entitlements and that is getting almost no attention. >> steve: in the meantime, you look at the stuff and it looks
4:48 am
like the main stream media essentially acting as a negotiator on behalf of the white house. republicans need to cave. don't think of it that way. think of compromise because that at thend of the day, both parties will give up something. >> sure. and by the way, let me to be totally honest, republicans have already caved. they've already fallen for it, right? they've already been pushed into, you watched the sunday shows, attacking grover norquist, as if that's the point. it's not. so the press has cowed republicans to do their bidding and in effect, doing the white house's bidding. but again, the real story is going unanded and that is will harry reid and the democrats in the house, led by nancy pelosi, show any movement at all in their willingness to rein in entitlement spending? >> steve: sure. and it sounds like what both sides are going to say for the next two weeks until about two weeks from now, it's really the drop dead date, both sides are going to say, sorry, the other side isn't giving up enough until we get to a mini cliff and
4:49 am
then, you know, suddenly there will be some sort of a solution. just like that. >> there will be many false peaks between here and there. >> steve: you can bet on it. tucker carlson joining us early on this monday after thanksgiving, thank you very much for joining us live from dc. >> thanks. >> steve: you bet. it is now 11 minutes before the top of the hour on this monday of the it's a christmas card the relatives will probably never forget. the kids, santa, and ak 47. but this idea is triggering a controversy. the man behind it here next. but first, on this date in history back in 1970, "i think i love you" by the partridge family, number one. ♪ i only want to make you happy ♪ ♪ and if you say hey go away i will ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] in blind taste tests, even ragu users chose prego. prego?! but i've bought ragu for years.

4:54 am
regular holiday tradition. >> gretchen: this begs the question, how the heck do you get started with santa and guns? >> it started three years ago. we had a customer actually a member of ours in the gun club that came in dressed as santa claus. several of the other customers and members in there wanted to get their picture taken with him. so we decided to formalize it and put together a structuredin. >> brian: what do you say to people who say we're giving out the wrong message, santa and guns? get my christmas list filled out or else. >> well, i think that whenever you talk about firearms is always a divisive issue with some folks, it's a very black and white industry, either you like them or support them or don't. what we're trying to do ask add a little holiday spirit into people's second amendment rights to be able to carry and purchase firearms. >> gretchen: it's anybody's right to do whatever they want, especially when it comes to the second amendment. i know that there is a member of
4:55 am
the congress in arizona, democratic member who is sensitive to the gabby giffords shooting incident and thinks maybe this is not the right image to portray. how would you respond back to that gentleman? >> i think that people have an individual choice to make. if they don't want to participate in this, they don't have to. it's something that basically we provide as a service to our customers and members. we do go all through the safety precautions, remove the firing pin, no fingers on the triggers. we do completely free firearm safety class for families. so we definitely want to educate people about shooting sports and proper shooting techniques. >> brian: do you think there is a chance this could spread to easter? and have the easter bunny with family? >> we don't have any plans for other holidays. >> gretchen: how does santa feel about it? >> santa has been very supportive. this is his second visit coming up this sunday, the 2nd. he seems to really want to get the word out there and he likes to see families enjoy the
4:56 am
shooting sports together. >> brian: one thing i'm noticing that you might have a rule out there, don't point the gun at santa. is that a rule? >> that is correct. we practice proper muzzle techniques, firearms pointed away, outside of the pictures. again, no fingers on the trigger. >> brian: why not arm santa? have you thought about that? >> in regards to pointing? >> brian: like could you give santa a gun? >> santa does not carry a firearm. >> brian: okay. >> gretchen: i think that's great idea, actually. okay. ron kennedy is the general manager of the scottsdale gun club where this has become a new fad. thanks for explaining it to us. appreciate it. >> my pleasure. thanks for having me. >> gretchen: coming up, the last budget showdown didn't go so well for the white house. but this time they've got a better idea. wait 'til you are hear who they're bringing back to lead the negotiations. it's a big secret. do you know who it is. >> brian: i do know. but i'm going to pretend not to.

>> gretchen: good morning, everybody. today is monday, november 26, 2012. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks so much for sharing your time with us today. i hope you had a great holiday weekend. they made a pledge to the american people never to raise taxes. but now several top republicans say they're going to back down on one condition. >> steve: we're a couple weeks' way from everybody's taxes going up unless washington can work together. so is turbo tax tim geithner the best guy to fix the problem? the man who cooperate figure out his own taxes? he's involved. we'll tell you how straight ahead. >> brian: forget big professional here comes big mother. a way for moms and dads to spy on their kids. the new drivers got somebody looking over their shoulder. "fox & friends" starts now.
5:01 am
>> steve: welcome to "fox & friends." now that we've gone through thanksgiving, we're one month away from christmas. but this year we're conflicted because at the end of the month is christmas and right next to it is the fiscal cliff. >> gretchen: i'm just going to think about christmas. radio he have it up to congress to worry about the fiscal cliff. they got us into this mess. so we should celebrate christmas and be merry and happy. that's the way i'm going to look at it because all they do is sit around and not get along. maybe this time they'll actually get the christmas spirit and actually get something done. >> brian: maybe. there is also if you're a defense contractor, you don't know what to do. you have no idea if you're going to be hiring people or firing people or maybe you're doing it anyway because you got to cut possibly $500 billion instantly out of your budget. >> steve: surely. now, grover norquist has -- a very long time, as the founder
5:02 am
of americans for tax reform oh, gotten hundreds of republicans to sign his pledge that if elected, in washington, they would not raise taxes. so he's got in a filing cabinet in the office somewhere, all of those pledges. here is the thing, we've got to raise more money and there are a number of republicans who have said okay. we can raise revenue maybe close deduction, loophole, stuff like that, just don't raise taxes. lindsey graham has actually said, maybe it's time to reexamine him signing the pledge. maybe he would go for higher taxes. here is what the senator said on abc. >> i agree with gopher, we shouldn't raise rates. but i think grover is wrong when it comes to we can't cap deductions and buy down debt. what do you do with the money? i want to buy down debt and cut rates to create jobs. but i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country, only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> brian: it's interesting that they're playing their cards in front of the people on a sunday when negotiations don't start
5:03 am
until today. >> gretchen: do they have a choice? >> brian: maybe. maybe they could keep their cards tight, but it shows some gift. saxby chambliss said i care more about my country than a 20 year pledge and he believes it's patriotic. >> steve: what they're doing is they're showing we haven't even started. all of the cards are on the table. it's the same way with susan rice because a number of republicans have come out over the last couple of weeks and said, she's completely disqualified for what she said in benghazi. but now they've kind of walked it back. we'll give geraldo rivera chance to explain what she was meaning when she said it was spontaneous. >> gretchen: that's because president obama won reelection. back to grover norquist. i think you get into difficult situation in relationships in general when you make people sign on the dotted line and then you crucify them if they ever decide to change their mind. i'll bring it back to like marriage. marriages don't work when one or both parties stand on both sides of the fence and say, i'm not budging.
5:04 am
then you get divorced. that's what happens. and it's the same analogy can hold true here, not that republicans should all decide to raise taxes. there should be also cuts on the other side. but i do think you get into sticky water when you make people sign to something and then they feel like they can never change their mind. >> steve: it's nice that some people, they stand for something. i went to washington to try to change things. >> gretchen: i agree that. but then they should stand for it on their own of the they shouldn't have to sign a pledge from somebody else. >> steve: but there are other ways. the republicans make a good case, there are other ways to raise the money and washington is a gigantic spender and waster of dough. >> brian: that's true. by the way, the other thing that just keep in mind, it's not going to work. nothing is going to a. it's going to be i got that trophy in my trophy case. i've got the rich to pay for 39 to -- 35 to 39%. you could make an argument when bill clinton did that, it slowed down the economy in the middle of the dot com bubble. liz cheney brought up growth
5:05 am
overt weekend and thomas freedman up. can we talk about growth for a second and not all about cutting and raising taxes? meanwhile, let's talk about what the white house wants to do. they want to put more pressure on the lawmakers that do not want to raise taxes by asking everybody that supported them to come forward with youtube videos, post them on twitter and facebook of those lawmakers, like moderate democrats and republicans that don't necessarily want to go along with the increase in taxes. so he asked you that question. what would you put in a video or an text message. >> gretchen: i feel like the campaign is still going on with this messaging. >> steve: it never ended. >> gretchen: the election is over. i don't really understand this idea of going back to the voters and creating youtube videos to talk about whether or not you should put pressure on your members of congress to raise taxes. here is what tracy in maryland thought about it in an e-mail. if my taxes go over 35%, i will decrease the number of patients i see. she's a doctor. daily to reduce my income which means my staff will also reduce
5:06 am
their income. that is the reality that a lot of physicians and small business owners are going to be facing. >> steve: joel in new york e-mailed this, let everybody pay their fair share. including those who pay no federal taxes and use government services. pay 2%, or $10 per year. how is it fair to pay nothing? and as we've told you on this program a number of times about half the country pays no federal income tax. >> brian: by the way, the message from the white house is to get the rich to pay more. to pay their fair share. one said, quit spending money that we don't have. if i have to live on a budget, so should you. cut back and spend less. >> gretchen: i don't understand why there is not -- maybe there is outrage, but maybe not justify of it. why do states have to balance their budgets and the federal government doesn't? i mean, that should be the first thing that they discuss when both parties get together to discuss this fiscal cliff. how difficult is that? let's talk about balancing the budget first. by the way, we have not passed a
5:07 am
budget in this country for more than three years. shouldn't that be on the agenda? >> steve: states can't deficit finance. but by statute, our federal government can. that's why we're $16 trillion in the hole. >> brian: when you are tired about talk being this country, let's talk about another. a stunning announcement out of israel, ehud barak calling it quits. leeland vittert got that news and is here to tell us what it's like inside jerusalem with that big news. what's the story? how is this playing? >> brian, shocking but not all that surprising. ehud barak is trying to go out on a good note. over the past couple of years, not that politically popular. did very well last week in the latest gaza war. got a popularity boost in the polls. time to move on. not only is he the former defense minister, but former prime minister. but as of late had not been doing that well politically. looked like he was not going to get a loft votes on january 22. so he bows out.
5:08 am
he says i'm gog retire from public life now for the second time, which we'll see if it happens. this time. what's interesting, he's israel's most decorated soldier and successful defense minister. even though he's not standing for election, going forward when the new prime minister comes into office, anyone can ask someone to be in the government. so conceivably, he will not be elected. he could once again be the defense minister. we'll have to see how that happens going forward. the other big story that everyone is watching that made headlines is what's going on inside egypt. there were mass protests by liberal opposition groups against president morsi in egypt. he put forward a decree that many are calling now making him the new pharaoh in egypt. certainly harking back to the mubarak times of the emergency laws and those kinds of things. those brought people out to the streets. one person was killed. 60 injured when crowds storm the muslim brotherhood offices. today president morsi is meeting with the judiciary whose decree
5:09 am
made irrelevant to try to calm things down and tomorrow there is huge protests planned on either side and that's the thing to watch to see whether this will explode again once again on the streets of cairo. back to you. >> steve: all right. live in jerusalem with the very latest. thank you. >> gretchen: and now the rest of today's headlines for monday. thousands of workers protesting today demanding justice for a factory fire. this happened in bangladesh. 112 people died. crowds are block streets and throwing rocks at the burned out garment factory, many workers were trapped in the building because if you can believe this, there were no emergency exits for them. there are reports that some of the clothes being made there were for wal-mart, sears, and the clothing line of sean colmes. in two hours, west virginia congresswoman shelly moore capito will announce her candidacy for senate. she was just elected to her 7th term in congress is a pro choice republican. she will run for democrat jay rockefeller's seat.

scientist. those are your headlines. >> steve: goes to show you how wig it was over there. meanwhile, a lot of people at their houses, they've got absolutely worthless powerball receipts they tried to play overt weekend. now the powerball jackpot is up to $425 million. what are the odds of winning the powerball jackpot? take a look at this. one in -- there is the number right there. >> gretchen: a trillion? >> steve: i that i is a gazillion. >> brian: can you translate that to not likely. >> steve: it isn't. one in 175 trillion. the odds of winning the jackpot. none the less, millions of us are going to go ahead and try it again. >> gretchen: why not? you never know. but how can you increase your odds? we had this expert on. he has won the lotto eight times before. richard lustic. here is his advice. pay close attention. >> casual players, people that just play once in a while, there
5:12 am
is -- it doesn't matter what you do. you might as well buy quick picks. if you're a regular player, you know you don't buy quick pickses. play regular numbers. there's a method to it. it will increase your chances of winning. one of my biggest rules is set a budget. don't spend grocery money. don't spend rent money. figure out what you can afford to spend and be satisfied with that amount of tickets. don't play greedy. play smart. so yes, pooling your money together with a few people and playing is a very good thing to do. >> steve: but if you're going to play in a pool, make sure you all understand going in, all right, we're all in this together. if og to be the person who is holding the tickets is going to wind up on the news. it's all of us together. >> brian: my dad owns a bar and he goes, i don't have any money, the customer gave my dad's bar tender a the lo toe ticket. he won $20,000 on the spot. the guy goes, i never gave it to you. i'm suing you. so all the money got lost to litigation. >> steve: i think that was also a movie.
5:13 am
>> brian: it should have been. i should sue somebody for stealing my idea. >> gretchen: what they say is to sign the back of the lottery tickets, every person ho is part of the pool. maybe have a legal document so you don't have brian's family story. >> brian: next up, more on this fiscal cliff. should you believe democrats who say republicans are holding the middle class hostage? peter johnson, jr. here on his own volition to tell you. >> steve: then one company offering a free flu shots for employees, but if you refuse to get the shot, you're fired. >> gretchen: wow [ male announcer ] red lobster's crabfest ends soon. hurry in and try five succulent entrees, like ourender snow crab paired with savory garlic shrimp. just $12.99. come into red lobster and sea food differently. and introducing 7 lunch choices for just $7.99. till you finish your vegetables.

>> steve: is president obama doing enough to bring congressional leaders together to avert the fiscal cliff at the end of this year? goodwin says the president should take some advice from one of the predecessors to the oval
5:17 am
office. >> if lbj were there now trying to get the fiscal cliff, they'd be sleeping at the white house. boehner would be in one room and lbj would be parading around in his robe. >> steve: fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. joins us live this morning. >> that's not the strategy this year. no. it's keep the election going. we've got the internet, rooms of people ready to go. we lost in some ways the public debate on obamacare when the tea party went to rallies, went to a town hall meetings. we're not going to lose it again. print and action kit. unions and certain progressive groups have sent out an action kit. so you can download posters that say middle class over millionaires. so the president is saying the republicans are holding the middle class hostage. but what in fact is happening is the president and the white house is getting a posse together ready to push rich folks over the so-called fiscal
5:18 am
cliff. if we have the rich pay more, although the statistics don't prove it in any way -- then all our problems will be solved. happy days are here again. and so some people say, the election choices were made. the president won. people want tax increases for the rich, so-called. >> steve: yeah. but just the first group the president met with after the election were labor leaders. and obviously he presented their plan. this is what we're going to do. we're going to continue to beat the drum and go after this class warfare thing, which i get it during the campaign, but the campaign is in the rearview mirror. it's time to come up with a deal. >> flank it's exhausting and i think the american people are exhausted by the fighting and the bitterness. there was so much talk, and i talked about it. i was optimistic after the election that we would have some type of consensus. but now it's clear and they've put it out in the times and the post and all the blogs and they said, well, the president is in
5:19 am
campaign mode. instead, i think, the president should be in consensus mode. in conciliation mode, in bringing these people together so we don't go off the fiscal cliff, so we don't have tax increases across the board, so we don't have defense cuts that make us terribly, terribly weak in terms of the world, but that's not the posture. i think the posture is, we're going to double down. we won the election. we can win this. we can win the next fight after this. let's build the group back together again for one more fight. then we can take on immigration, we can take on some other wedge issues in this country and win those. the problem is, we do a disservice and do vie license to our culture in having a fight after fight after fight. gooden was saying, be like lbj in passing the civil rights act, if passing medicare. bring john mccormack, then the
5:20 am
speaker of the house and others into the white house, talk, whisper, fight, cajole. beat each other up. privately. come to consensus that way. i don't think this country is ready for division right now. we're ready for healing at this point and ready to solve this and not kick it over. kicking it over is the easy way. >> steve: it should be let's make a deal. not my way or the highway. >> you got it. >> steve: all right. thank you very much. we'll see you tomorrow. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. it's like low jack for women. husbands electronically tracking their wives. we're going to tell where you this is happening and how you can avoid it. and then, secret police files shredded and yet not so secret. used as confess fifthy at the macy's thanksgiving day parade. how in the world did this happen in we got some of the facts straight ahead [ male announcer ] every day, thousands of people like you, are choosing advil®

negatively impacting retailers and businesses nationwide. yesterday, senator john mccain reiterated his opposition to increasing revenues and taxes. here he is. >> because every economist that i respect says if you raise tax rates at this time, in fact, the president even said that a couple of years ago -- that it harms the economy. we're trying to help the economy. so unless i can be convinced that raising tax rates will be beneficial, then obviously i think there is reason and grounds for my position. >> but other republicans have signaled a willingness to break their pledge to raise revenues. senator lindsey graham speaking on one of the talk shows over the weekend said he's willing to entertain closing tax loopholes and deductionses, but only with the commensurate deeply painful cuts from the democrats. here he is. >> i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country, only if democrats will do entitlement reform.
5:39 am
>> let me salute lindsey graham. what he just said about revenue and taxes needs to be said on his side of the i'll. we need to be honest on our side of the aisle and as we did under bowles simpson, put everything on the table. >> but when asked if he'd be willing to reform social security, senator durbin says social security doesn't add one penny to the debt. that it's a separately funded operation. one final note, the president was out shopping on saturday and when asked by a pool reporter if that was his part to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, the president said, come on, guys, we're just christmas shopping here. that's it from the white house. talks expected to continue this week. back to you. >> steve: let the games begin. douglas, thank you. >> gretchen: now to the rest of today's headlines, brand-new evidence that could have changed the outcome of the casey anthony murder trial. police in florida now admitting that they missed a google search done by someone in the anthony household. the search seems kind obvious. it was for the words, foolproof suffocation. the search done the same day

5:46 am
also back on track this morning, path service. that's train service. long island railroad out of long beach, long island. for more on this, let's go to an tron louis live in manhattan where i understand there is a major update this monday morning. >> well, all morning we've been letting everyone know exactly what you've been saying, that the path service has resumed to here in lower manhattan. we have just found out the service has suspended because of a signal problem that they've been trying to work out for at least the last 15 minutes or so. so that's what the new news is. that's what the update is. they're trying to work this. right now the service has been suspended, but it did get underway at 5:00 o'clock as promised by transit officials here. it's also another step, if you will, barring this misstep now, this temporary thing from what we're hearing, and trying to get lower manhattan back up to speed, trying to move forward with the recovery and the process all in these four weeks since super storm sandy and the nor'easter a few days after that. we can tell you the path
5:47 am
station, all morning long, we've been seeing smiling faces, a loft people showing relief. obviously there will be frustration now with this information, but the information from the web site for new jersey transit and for the path service that this is goes to go a temporary thing and hope to have it fixed to continue the commute sometime within the next couple of hours. we'll keep you updated. >> steve: thank you very much. live report from manhattan. gretch, over to you. >> gretchen: thank you very much. the ever evolving story from the administration about what happened in benghazi, libya is becoming more confusing by the day with susan rice speaking out in defense of her comments. and james clapper saying he's the one who took out al-qaeda talking points after originally saying he had no idea who did it. so who should we really believe? maybe santa can help us. nope. instead we got michael goodwin. you can find his columns in the "new york post" and fox news. who is telling the truth and who is lying? >> look, you ask who we should believe? i think no one.
5:48 am
that's the whole point of putting people under oath. then supposedly get the truth or we get perjury. i believe susan rice had to know better before she made those comments. i just recently reread president obama's speech to the u.n. where there is no question he is saying the video did it. all of that was false. they all had reason to know it was false. clapper is just a clown. i mean, he does this all the time. and the idea that james clapper can take responsibility for making the changes, why isn't president obama furious at him? why doesn't president obama fire him today if the president really believed that clapper made a huge mistake? >> gretchen: that's a loaded question because as director of national intelligence to say one thing and then say another, especially when it has to do with al-qaeda, are they throwing him under the bus? >> look, i think he put himself under the bus by probably giving congress in those private briefings, a false answer. he said, we didn't make the changes. he said that to members of congress, presumably he was
5:49 am
under oath, and then publicly says, oh, wait, we did make thet perjury. that's all that is. that is not ultimately taking responsibility. look, i think this does rest with two people. susan rice, who made those statements repeatedly in public, and the president, who sent her out there and now defends her. why isn't the president outraged that his administration was given -- let's put it charitably -- was given false information by the intelligence community and then spread a false story? if he really believes that's what happened, why isn't he outraged that the intelligence community? >> gretchen: we'll see if the outrage comes in the coming weeks. michael goodwin, fox news contributor and new york post columnist. check him out on boast sites. coming up, angie harmon live with us on the curvy couch. first, let's check in with martha mccallum for what's coming up at the top of the hour. happy thanksgiving. >> happy thanksgiving to you. welcome back and good morning, everybody. so coming up on "america's
